Self-injurious behaviour: Insights and interventions for occupational therapists

Register by Monday, June 24, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. (Eastern time)

Presenter: Logan McColl

Self-injurious behaviours continue to challenge many Canadians, most increasingly our female youth. 20,967 Canadians of all ages were hospitalized due to self-injury in the annual 2016-2017 reporting period, with 15 suppressed data points across provinces. Clinicians, health, and community systems often struggle to respond effectively to individuals presenting with self-injury concerns. Despite scientific advances in evidence-based treatment for self-injurious behaviour, their adoption into traditional support systems has been slow.

This webinar will explain conceptual understandings of self-injurious behaviour, and how they impact a person’s self-care, productivity and leisure occupations. Current evidence-based intervention approaches and clinical considerations for occupational therapists will be reviewed.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand how self-injurious behaviour concerns impact a person’s occupations.
  2. Understand case formulation considerations for self-injurious behaviours and the role of occupational therapy in recovery.
  3. Identify current evidence-based intervention approaches for people who demonstrate self-injurious behaviour.
